Swiss visa application centre in Dubai to be outsourced

Dubai: The Consulate General of Switzerland has announced it will temporarily outsource its visa application centre from January 24 to March 31.

The section's temporary residence will be the Schengen Visa Application Centre managed by VFS Global at the Jumeirah Palms Residence on Al Hudaiba Road in Dubai. The move is due to scheduled renovation work at the Consulate General of Switzerland. The temporary centre will continue to accept visa applications for Switzerland from January 24 to March 31.


The procedures and time taken to process the Schengen Visa will remain the same - 24 hours to three weeks - depending on the type of visa and nationality of the applicant. The centre will open from 9am to 12pm and 1pm to 5pm from Sunday to Thursday.
